Be it conventional braces or clear aligners, we’ve got the solution. We also offer Invisalign and other aesthetic treatments at our South Brisbane office.
Should I Get Dental Braces?
The most common reason that people choose to align their teeth is that their teeth are crooked or overcrowded which may impact their confidence. Many people think wearing braces is only for teenagers, but the good news is that you’re never too old to correct your smile – as long as you have healthy teeth and gums.
Another reason to consider orthodontics is that crooked teeth can have a negative impact on your oral health and general well-being. When teeth aren’t correctly aligned, they can become much harder to clean increasing the risk of decay and gum disease.
What You Should Know About Teeth Straightening
It can feel slightly uncomfortable at first
Dental braces in Coopers Plains and Emerald help to make subtle adjustments to the position of your teeth due to small amounts of pressure that are placed on them over a certain period of time. At times, this pressure can be a little uncomfortable for a day or two, but this is normal and should quickly subside.
Oral Care with Braces
It’s really important that you take extra good care of your oral hygiene when having treatment for orthodontics especially when it comes to fixed braces. This is because the wires and brackets that are attached to the teeth make cleaning a little trickier than usual.
To keep your teeth and gums healthy throughout your orthodontic treatment it’s essential that you properly remove and dislodge any food debris from the braces and clean your teeth thoroughly. Our team of dental professionals will show you how to properly look after your braces and advise you on the best cleaning techniques.
